The Regional Factbook Keeper of The Universal Guardian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Warden with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.529 billion Universal Guardians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hope. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Universal Guardianian economy, worth 315 trillion Universal Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 25,210 Universal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, Lions are considered a delicacy, and students abandon classrooms for online education. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Universal Guardian's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Scientific Advancement Score.

The Universal Guardian is ranked 142,816th in the world and 37th in The Universal Order of Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 664.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
